Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri hopes “flexibility” in the F1 rules helps the famous Maranello team pull itself out of its “hole”, while Ferrari chairman John Elkann admits that Ferrari’s “enormous history” in F1, which was marked at Mugello with the team’s 1000th race, “also creates pressure”.
Spanish driver Carlos Sainz is moving from McLaren to Scuderia Ferrari next season and he is already asking for “patience and trust” from his own fans:
“I think we have to wait,” he told El Mundo Deportivo newspaper. “F1 may change next year with a couple of regulations to slow down the cars and take away downforce. It is a very young project, Mattia already said that last year, and now we have to wait and see if things improve a bit. They will surely improve.” – Carlos Sainz added.
“I think it is a difficult challenge but one that I want to do – to get to Ferrari, to do everything I can to improve the car, to guide in the direction that I think is the right one and prepare well for the regulation change in 2022 which for me will be the key for the next years. But changing a car to suddenly win races is going to be difficult,” he acknowledged – “So I think that next year is going to be a difficult year but a year that if Ferrari hits the key of the problems and spends the ‘tokens’ in the correct areas, suddenly the year can be much better than this one.” – the future Scuderia Ferrari driver concluded.
